Our deepest sympathy to you and your entire family. Your parents were so sweet and special to me. I am thankful I was able to see your Mom at Birchaven before COVID hit. She was always so excited when I told her who I was and that I used to work for Ralph. I will always cherish my memories. God bless you all!

It's so difficult to lose a parent. Our hearts and prayers are with all of you. I have many fond memories of Betty. She always came to my Grandma's milestones, even after Ralph passed.She always called me Susie. And one of the last times I saw her- even though she, at first didn't recognize me....she looked into my eyes and then said "Oh! Susie!" Due to Covid, we will not be able to attend, but our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Many condolences sent your way. What a sweet lady Betty was. I met her when she was outside with Pumpkin when I was walking my granddog Rascal, who looked just like her poodle. She even checked out the dog seat I had for Rascal. Betty saw me when Rascal and I were visiting my mother-in-law at Birchhaven. What a smile she got on her face. I really missed seeing her when she moved. God bless.

Bill and I send our sympathy in the passing of your mother. Bill and Betty were the same age and always joking about which was the oldest. Our friendship goes way back to Casper days. We are at Primrose Retirement Village and we last saw her in her apartment come time ago.We are missing too many of our old friends and our thoughts and prayers go out to all your family during this difficult time.
